Insalata di Pomodori Siciliani
Sicilian Tomato Salad
by James Belardo

I was reminded of this salad when visiting the Black Skirt, an Italian Restaurant located in Toronto whose specialty is Calabrian and Sicilian style food. Their version of this classic mix of simple and fresh ingredients got me very excited, I felt right at home.

San Marzano or plum tomatoes (ripe) – diced or sliced
Garlic, crushed and processed through garlic press
Red Onions, finely diced (optional)
Fresh Fennel sliced in 1/2-3/4 inch slivers  (optional)
Fresh Basil
Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Toss together and enjoy with some crusty pane Italiano (Italian bread).

Don’t forget to dip some bread in the lovely juice from this salad!
